Thanks for making your headlines available in Spanish. Please consider allowing archive.org to make derivatives of the Spanish headlines in other file formats (such as Ogg Vorbis).

Hi,

The MP3s which we upload are exactly those received from the folks who do the translation. Apparently, archive.org does not like to make derivatives of already compressed files, and it makes little sense for us to uncompress a file just so that archive.org could recompress it. So, for now at least, MP3 is the only format available. If the Spanish-translation project is successful, perhaps we will consider additional formats in the future.
